Well time has come to drag the GT out of the garage, literally! 4 years after being pushed in the back brakes were seized on. It's a 1980 GT that was taken off the road in 1990 after a front end bump.

Was originally applejack green, was repainted black and treated to a vinyl roof, original interior, RG type James B alloy wheels.

First saw the car about 10 years ago in a garage in a house I was delivering to and asked for first refusal, finally got my paws on it about 4 years ago, but had to get my youngest started in school and get married as well.

I'll stop rambling now, got a day off tomorrow so will sort out a photo bucket account and upload some pics, Jimmy

Can't wait to see some pics, I love Applejack Green quite a rare colour back in the day. Good luck with the build.

Just had a look on the mini wheel dictionary (can be found on here somewhere) and looks like never made in 10s. They have grown on me, I like the rarity, never seen another set, guess I'm gonna be proved wrong
